I am delighted to share the news of the NYIT School of Management's attainment of initial business accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International. This significant achievement represents the culmination of a four-year effort to secure this prestigious designation, which recognizes educational excellence and quality.
NYIT is now one of less than 5 percent of the world’s universities that have earned this accreditation, and the achievement signals the recognition of overall high-quality management education that we provide to the global community. This includes our campus locations in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Vancouver as well as our campus and Ministry of Education-approved programs in China.
I’d like to express my appreciation to the broader stakeholder community of NYIT, who were integral as participants and friends toward achieving this milestone distinction. Of particular note are both the faculty and staff of the School of Management, who were encouraged to “Think AACSB” and were actively engaged in strategic planning, curriculum development, support of professional enrichment, experiential education, student advancement, and rigorous assessment processes, and our students, who have demonstrated significant leadership ability, advanced our commitment to creating an engaged and collaborative community, and taken considerable responsibility for their educational outcomes.
